Digital Ally Receives Order From US Military Police for FirstVu HD Body Cameras Linked to DVM-800 In-Car Video Systems

LENEXA, KS--(Marketwired - Sep 26, 2014) - Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY) ("the Company"), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, today announced that it has received an order from a U.S. military base involving the Company's complete video evidence gathering system. The solution includes the FirstVU HD body-worn camera, DVM-800 in-car camera and patented VuLink, which provides hands-free recording activation and integrates the video systems into a seamless data/evidence gathering solution.

The initial order is valued at approximately $200,000, with subsequent follow-on orders expected. Although not a huge order in itself, the military police in general represents a largely untapped channel through which Digital Ally can distribute its line of products, and illustrates an increasing awareness of the benefits provided by capturing comprehensive audio and video of officer-involved incidents for police forces in all areas.

"We believe that our customers, both civilian as well as military police departments, are embracing our 'complete' solution, involving in-car and body-worn cameras together with our patented VuLink system, because it ensures that video and audio evidence of critical situations involving their officers are captured by both systems, providing far superior and more complete documentation of the events," stated Stanton Ross, the Company's President and CEO. 

"We are seeing more customers requiring a single vendor source for their in-car and body-worn video systems," continued Ross. "There is increasing demand that the in-car and body-worn systems 'talk to each other,' and that evidence generated from both systems can be stored in the same back-office storage systems. We believe that we are the only provider of systems that meet these requirements, given our patented VuLink product."

Digital Ally's VuLink is the only system that enables body cameras to start recording automatically and allows a department's in-car video systems to be automatically or manually activated simultaneously with the body cameras. For example, when a vehicle's emergency lights are turned on, the body camera will automatically begin recording simultaneously with the vehicle's video system, thereby removing any distraction to the officer or the chance that the officer may forget to activate a recording manually. The recordings can later be linked together to provide a seamless record of the same incident from different perspectives using the back office software, which manages and authenticates the evidence.

"Following the civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, the attention we have experienced for our body-worn cameras appears to have increased demand for our in-car products, as well," stated Stanton Ross, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally, Inc. "Law enforcement agencies across the country and beyond have turned those tragic events into a call for action, and we believe that our patented VuLink system is setting us apart from our competitors."

The Company will attempt to deliver this order in the third quarter of 2014. However, the Company is experiencing product shortages in the wake of an increased demand for both test and evaluation units, as well as customer sales. Accordingly, this order may not ship until the fourth quarter of 2014.
